I keep losing my favorites in Windows 10 when an update to Windows 10 is received. How do I prevent this from happening? How can I recover my favorites in Windows 10 when this occurs?

Hi there and welcome

In which web browser are you doing this?

Windows 10.

Windows 10, Microsoft Edge.

Thanks

The problem is this does not ever store a backup off your bookmarks, and it is one of the reasons people are moving away from Edge.

When they are removed they cannot be recovered.

What I advise on is to download Google Chrome from my link below

www.google.com/chrome

Install it

Once installed, click on the three dots in the top right and click on settings.

Click on Sign in and sign in with a Gmail account. If you do not have one, you can make one free here

https://accounts.google.com/SignUpWithoutGmail?hl=en

Once signed in, all bookmarks in Chrome will be syned to your account so you cannot lose them ever.

Then to import the booksmarks you already have in Edge, click on the three dots in the top right of chrome and click on Bookmarks, import bookmarks and settings and choose Edge

Once imported, they are in Chrome and online.

You would then use Chrome in place of Edge from now on, which is actually better as it is a more secure and faster web browser.
